Thanks, hip. That room seems it would be best for us as well. And now that she is 5, maybe we can manage that 10 min. walk!

Shillmac-There are 4 beachfront domes at Ylang Ylang. They are right on the ocean and comprised of one room with a queen bed, a washroom with indoor shower, an outdoor shower, and a nice deck with chairs overlooking the ocean. They have always been my preference due to their proximity to the beach. They are very cute geodisic type huts, you can see them on the Ylang Ylang website. They are one of the most expensive type of accomodation at YY, I belive $235/nt in green season, and that includes breakfast and dinner.
Volcanogirl-the domes are NOT the same as the jungalows. The jungalows are "upscale tents", farther removed from the beach, and in my opinion, lack the privacy of the other units.
They also have a couple of domes with fabulous ocean views,and I beleive there are 2 queens in these. I had friends who stayed in these (#5?) and loved them because there was a monkey highway in the trees above them.
The Beachfront suites are set in a complex with a nice ocean view, and also very close to the ocean. We met a couple who stayed in them in February and thought they were great.
Hope that answers some questions.
Shillmac, there is one unit called Coco Joes that families usually rent,very similar to the domes, but more private. There is a king or queen bed on the main floor, and a great loft with 2 beds for kids. It has more space then the regular domes, and is directly on the beach.

Thanks, crl; that does help clarify things. If I was thinking dome and got tent, I would have been sad!

shillmac -- Yeah, I think since we need 2 beds, and since this trip is going over budget as we speak, we'll be sticking with the room. ;-)

costaricalover -- Thanks for all the clarifications. That helps a lot!
